Standardized Operating Concept for Easy Handling
At Wirtgen, we have also responded to the wishes and needs of our customers. The ergonomically designed operator’s platform provides an ideal overview of the entire construction site and a hydraulically height-adjustable weather canopy protects the operator against sun and rain.
The user interface of the SP 102i features state-of-the-art control panels with language-independent graphic labeling of all control elements. These are identical on all Wirtgen slipform pavers, which reduces the need for training and familiarization of operators working for the first time with the various models. At the same time, the ergonomic layout of the control elements reduces the operator’s workload and promotes higher productivity.
Proven Wirtgen Technologies Assure Optimal Paving Quality
For example, the oscillating super smoother ensures high surface quality of the up to 18-inch thick concrete layers. These can have crown profiles with a cross slope of up to 3%. As an additional option, two side dowel bar inserters place anchors into the fresh concrete to prevent adjacent lanes drifting apart.
The machine is equipped with hydraulic vibrators to assure high-quality compaction. They evenly compact the concrete and ensure a homogeneous structure, producing high paving quality. In addition to the 18 factory-fitted hydraulic connections for vibrators, the inset slipform paver can also be equipped for the connection of 24 or 30 hydraulic vibrators for greater working widths as an additional option.
Intelligent High-Tech Solutions On-Board
In order to satisfy the most stringent demands regarding profile precision on roads and paved areas, the SP 102i is fitted with a field-proven 3D interface. This can be used in combination with a 3D system and total stations from various providers for the realization of extremely precise paving results based on pre-determined planning data. In many cases, this makes paving more precise and economical than with the conventional leveling and steering method or stringline paving.
With WITOS FleetView, the SP 102i also provides remote support for machine fleet managers. This telematics solution from the Wirtgen Group makes fleet management easier and increases machine availability by timely identification, planning and execution of required maintenance and servicing. At the same time, WITOS FleetView enables access not only to positioning and machine data, but also to all status information such as, for example, the current fuel level.
